If you, like many other families, are choosing to leave the chef’s hat to someone else this year, we have rounded up some great family friendly festive brunches in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ras Al…Read More
Looking for a great children’s party from “toddlers to older’s” (2-10) which is great fun? Look no further than Mattel Play Town Dubai
When researching options this year we looked at Kidzapp UAE (a great app which has the best of Dubai for families, events, days out, parties and more) and we chose to hold a party at Mattel Play Town in City Walk, for our 2 year old daughter and given that we also have a 9 year old, this felt like the perfect option for our family.
Now usually parties for us, involve dealing with a number of different suppliers, and a lot of co-ordination, however the team at Mattel Play Town make everything easy with wonderful direct support. They offer a range of different packages, we opted for the platinum package (AED 180 per child) which includes the below :
· Electronic invitation card
· Free entry for birthday child & guardians
· Free entry for adults attending the birthday
· Themed decorations & a party room (1 hour)
· Includes a party host and party games
· A 15-minute Favourite Character appearance
· A complimentary 20 AED retail voucher per child
· A group or family photo
· A meal, a popcorn and ice cream for all children. View our menu
· A coffee or a tea for attending adults
We arrived on the day to find our party room fully decorated, with a balloon arch, and a gorgeous table setting, dedicated staff to look after us and entertain, as well as a photographer to capture one special group, or family photo.
The little ones had such a fun time in the party room, the highlight for our daughter was the visit from Angelina Ballerina, which was followed by cake cutting and a great lunch for all the kids, which we had been able to pre-order to exactly what their parents had preferred.
Then on to the theme park, one amazing part of their party package is that the guests can enjoy the entire area, for the whole day.
The area has five Matte-themed zones, each reinforcing positive values through creative and imaginative play. Enjoy music, singing and dancing in Barney’s yard or watch Thomas & Friends come to life in the 4D cinema, learn the value of teamwork when joining Bob the Builder in building a city, Get dressed for action and join Fireman Sam to save the day while learning about fire health and safety, or go and learn ballet with Angelina Ballerina.
We stayed and played, but after 3.5 hours our little one was party pooped! Thanks Mattel! We will be back!
